    I agree with this. I like Premieres fine IRL. Another reason is that the lumpy, quirky scoring works OK because getting even one or two jackpots is a real achievement. The TPA versions are a grind...

    I'm very underwhelmed so far. I don't like the table in real life, and this version isn't really moving the needle. There is just not a lot gong on with the playfield. So much wasted real estate.

    The most obvious platform difference here is just the usual one---nudge strength/tilt sensitivity, which is a bigger problem for tables like this (and e.g. El Dorado) where on mobile 2 x nudge = tilt.

    Dang, midnight madness, I had no idea.

    Anyway, I tried to play around with ball recycle skill shots + bonus x + extra balls +drains as an optimizing strategy in Junk Yard. That bonus can overwhelm...

    I'm curious (and have zero expertise here), aren't ball physics what is going to get us away from railroaded kickouts, bricked ramps etc? Or is what you mean by flipper physics also going to have...

    Do not under any circumstances hit the ball with the upper left flipper. RESIST!

    I only see table standings, overall tournament standings and points aren't there like they used to be in the old UI.

    Is there a more frustrating table for a timed tournament than Junk Yard? Everything takes forever. Ball in play to total time ratio might be under 50%. And yes, I'm just bitter because I hit 0:00...

    I second this. Similar thing going on with Xenon. Really nice table in simulation, but the real version of this has that extra "it factor".

    Huh. I guess this isn't possible for me then on my Android touchscreen. Oh well!

    Wow, how are you able to nudge this much? On my version two nudges get a tilt for sure.
  12. Eternal roulette spin on ball launch?

    My masochistic quest to beat my 2.5b HRC high score continues, and I had a new experience today. I plunged ball 1 and it spun in the roulette wheel, accumulating the 25k each time, infinitely. Well,...

    Well now I feel like a doofus because right after posting I managed 575,000. Apparently all I need to do to improve my scores is vent on the forums. :)

    One thing: I got this using 3 ball mode....

    High score videos?

    I have played roughly infinity games of Big Shot, and my high score is 300,610, good for a scintillating 749th on the leaderboards. I'm having trouble even conceiving of how 1m+ scores can be one on...

    I've always found CV pretty tough but I finally had a good game on it yesterday (724m) so I wanted to record some thoughts.

    Banzai Run has to happen.
    Demolition Man I own and love. Although it's an easy table IRL so I dread to think how long the games will get in the sim.

    Fun table. Not a ton of flow but rules and scoring seem well thought out. Feels to me like a higher than usual percentage of shots don't hit anything useful---I had more bricking than normal on my...

    ST:TNG just missed out for me. Like CC, I'd rather play for Final Frontier than grind Borg multiball.

    MB I do see the appeal but it's middle of the pack for me mostly because the table as a whole...
  19. Favorite and least favorite wizard modes in TPA

    From the tables in the collection, what wizard modes do you love, and which drive you crazy? In case of controversy, feel free to define wizard mode broadly to accommodate your favorite and least...

    Just had a go at SF2 on location for the first time over the weekend and I like it quite a bit. Agree it's probably underrated. But it has the same flavor of non-linear scoring as R911, Tee'd Off...

    At Pinball Wizard in NH tokens are ~$0.25 (discounts for big bills) and the tables take anywhere from 2-5 tokens. I assume depending on popularity and/or maintenance cost. I admit some of my...

    Aside from anything else this is the whole premise of slap saves and slide saves.
